Capturing Life's Beauty One Photo at a Time
The signs of autumn emerge as morning shadows crisscross the bridge and highlight the fallen leaves.
Photo taken at Red Oak Nature Center in Batavia, Illinois.
Very nice. This is a good time of year for the colors on trees.
It’s a beautiful time of the year — thanks, Mike!
Love the colors and shadows!
Pat, I appreciate the comment — thank you!
Thanks for sharing! Love the fall!
Thank you for the comment!
How lovely to think of this season as a bridge – nice shot Brian!
A bridge to all things new and good…
I’m all for that! 🙂
Wonderful array of leaf colours. Image made all the more interesting by the geometric shadows. Love it!
Thank you very much, Tripod!
Really lovely image with its soft colours and grid of shadows.
Thanks so much, John!
Yes, it’s that time again! Time to feel that autumn inspiration; see where it will push us this time around with oor cameras, paint brushes, pens and thoughts.
It’s my favorite season — thanks!
Autumn leaves and old wood– they do seem made for each other. Lovely image! : )
I appreciate the kind words, Mark!
Thank you, Bashar!
Brian, it’s been a long time since I checked my emails from wordpress and I’m glad I ran into yours first. I miss looking at the pictures you post and may I say this one is particularly touching since fall is upon us and I feel blue. Yet, the colors of this shot are amazingly beautiful, though dying and forgotten on the deck of this bridge, they still hold a large variety of shapes and colors. Great shot Brian and as always keep up doing what you’re passionate and very good at. Luc
Thank you so much for the wonderful comment and reblog, Luc. I always appreciate your insight.
I love your work, it very simple, honest, and it’s the truth 😀
Reblogged this on Infernal Deity of a Psychotic Mind and commented:
Though never been a fan of Fall, this shot is amazing in many ways, by showing amazing colors of something most people pass by everyday and don’t notice. Thanks to Brian Gaynor for this great shot.
What a beauty, Brian…our maples here in Rogers Park are nowhere near turning such glorious colors!
The leaves are starting to turn out here. Hopefully, Rogers Park will experience the changing colors soon.
It’s really rather Blah, Brian…some yellowy-golds, some mahoganies, but the maples look as if they’ll just fade out to a lighter dull green (kind of like the color of putty)!
I love the organic/grid opposites at work in this image! Also, solid bridge vs. delicate leaves… warm vs. cool colors…
Thank you for the great comment, Anita!
Autumn or fall… ;), lovely colours and beautiful light!
Thank you very much, Vibeke!
Ah! the light and shadows of experiences bridging our lifetimes…Percy Bysshe Shelley described his poems as dead leaves scattered about…your visual poem here reminds me of this…many thanks Brian!!! with best wishes, Shelley
Thank you, Shelley!
Your title and the photo say a lot! Autumn is a bridge between summer and winter and the different colors of the leaves (even green) also display the concept of a “bridge”. Nice job!
A treat for the eyes! Thankyou 🙂
Thank you, Urban!
